2002 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought it new. Have put on 135K miles so far with no problems other than normal wear items. Runs like a top. Still love to drive this car. Wonderfully crisp handling, great powerband. No probs w/fuel economy. I get the mfr's rating of 25 mpg on the highway with 70mph cruising. One of Toyota's finest creations.


Best Features

Very good 5 speed tranny. Reliability. Comfort and handling.


Worst Features

None.

2002 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car used with 76k miles on it. Traded in a Mitsu SUV and I was on a budget. I found this car for under $11k. Car is very fun to drive with quick acceleration and great handling. Ride is a little stiffer than what I'm used to, but hey I went from an SUV to a compact sport sedan. Auto tranny shifts nicely, the interior is nice and has an easy layout.


Best Features

The driving experience. While it's not a BMW, it's still a very fun to drive car. Nice in/out and comes with Lexus quality and reliability. Even used at 76k miles, it runs like new and is very quiet.


Worst Features

Wish the gas mileage was better. Only gets about 2 MPG more than my previous SUV.

2002 Lexus IS 300 SportCross 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

SportCross is a head turner and as well as roomy! Fast, super smooth, super reliable, (had an A4 before and everything broke at 50K, this has 82K and tires, oil are that have changed). I hate when people complain about gas mileage.You knew what the gas mileage was when you bought it! I have gotten over 20 in city and 30 on highway.


Best Features

Stereo, manual shift/automatic option, auto dimming mirrors, headlights that move.

Review

Other than the average fuel economy, everything about this car has met or exceeded our expectations. With the five-speed it's a blast to drive!


Best Features

Five speed manual transmission, navigation, and 6-disc CD player.


Worst Features

Fuel economy and a split rear seat instead of the armrest pass through.
